ISO/IEC 27701:2019 Internal Auditor Training Course

ISO/IEC 27701:2019 is designed to help organizations better understand, manage and reduce their risks around personal information. ISO/IEC 27701:2019 is designed to specify requirements and provide guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a PIMS in the form of an extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy management within the context of your organization.


Once an organization has implemented ISO/IEC 27701:2019, it is imperative that it measures the effectiveness of its implementation efforts to better understand what is working well and where things might be improved. The framework has been designed with flexibility in mind, which will enable organizations to respond to the results of their measuring efforts by making adjustments to their implementation.


By attending this one-day course, you’ll understand why measurement and analysis of the framework implementation is so important and what areas internal audit should focus on to ensure its effectiveness.


This course will provide you with sufficient information on auditing your ISO/IEC 27701:2019 implementation to enable you and your organization to understand, detect, correct and monitor the effectiveness of the framework.
